CRICKET: Warwick paceman Mark Steketee has been selected in the Queensland Bulls 12-man squad for the match against the Bushrangers which will utilize a pink ball in the only day/night Shield game at the Gabba this season.

The game starts at 1pm Thursday. 

The Gabba became just the second venue in Australia to host a day/night Test match last summer when Australia took on Pakistan. 

Queensland has named pace bowler Brendan Doggett in the 12 with the Toowoomba product set to become the first Indigenous player to represent the state since Michael Mainhardt in 1982-83. 

Mainhardt, who more recently coached Doggett in the Queensland Imparja Cup side, played three first class games for Queensland. 

The 23-year-old paceman made his List A debut for Queensland earlier this month in the JLT One Day Cup and would make his first class debut if selected in the starting team. 

Batsman Sam Heazlett was not available for selection after sustaining a shoulder injury during Queensland's last JLT Cup win that will sideline him for up to a month. 

The Bulls will train Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon at the Gabba. 

TEAM: Usman Khawaja (c), Joe Burns, Brendan Doggett, Luke Feldman, Marnus Labuschagne, Michael Neser, James Peirson, Matthew Renshaw, Mark Steketee, Mitch Swepson, Sam Truloff, Jack Wildermuth (12th man to be named at the toss)
